Minor Degree in Geological Sciences
A minor in the Department of Geological Sciences consists of a minimum of 15 hours of course work with at least 9 credit hours at the GEOL2000-level or above. Nine of the required credits must be taken in residence. The Department of Geological Sciences will not accept credits in Independent Studies as part of the minor. All courses must be taken for a letter grade and a grade of C- or better must be earned in each course. The courses should be selected in consultation with an advisor in the department.
Students are advised to take either Principles of Geology (GEOL1100), Physical Geology for Scientists and Engineers (GEOL1150), or Environmental Geology (GEOL1200), as these courses serve as introductions to geological sciences and are required for most other courses offered by the Department of Geological Sciences.
All students pursuing a minor in Geological Sciences must file a form listing their intended coursework (pdf) with the Director of Undergraduate Studies. A second copy should be filed with the Arts and Science advising office.
